Hope everyone had a great Christmas! I know I did, and as a result I am in the market for a good 10wt fly reel to go on my new 10wt TFO rod. Anyone have any suggestions? I have a 8wt Tibor on another rod, but I really don't wanna drop that kinda cash on another reel. Call me cheap!

My 10wt is an Allen. More on the average side for a reel and has a very quiet drag but it Is good to look at. But I love both of my Lamsons.

9/11 Colton
I got one after getting a 12/13 for my Predator and love it. He may still have some (said he was running low when I got mine) and has them on sale til Jan 15. Super smooth drag and beautifully machined reel.
I had a Lamson Konic 4 which was nice but, sent it back after getting a Colton.
Back Country Outfitters has the best prices I found for the Konic and half the price of the Colton.

Thanks for the suggestions. Those Lamsons are not in my budget right now but the Allen and Colton both look pretty good. Thanks again!

You won't be dissapointed with the Okuma SLV.. They have them on Amazon for $40-$50 with free shipping. My 1st Okuma is 15 yrs old and still goin strong-holds up well to salt and a smooth drag. Just got another 8-9 and am impressed with new silver color. Read the reviews and go fish. Tightlines--FD

You can also check with MRFC.com (Madison River Fishing Company) they always have great deals on reels. I am also in the market and they have some lamson's for 99 and some scientific anglers for 30...

Okuma SLV

I was just checking specs on the 10/11 and they are impressive. Shows 520 yds of 30# with a 10 wt line. Looking at the specs of the other sizes, it looks like that is using the standard 30# dacron. Cork drag has been working for the big name reels. Looks like a great deal.

I ended up going with the CRG II 10wt. Hope I don't regret not going with the Torrent! Thanks for the suggestions everyone!

Aaaand got nervous so I talked to the owner. He recommended going with the Torrent 1113 for extra capacity if chasing some of the bigger boys. So now I have that on the way. :yes:
